Susan’s 40th Birthday!

Today we celebrated Susan’s 40th birthday! It was a little different, being on the road.

The day started with opening a few gifts – from us and from Erin.
The kids had fun playing with Susan’s new neck pillow.
We ate breakfast at Cinnamon Twisp, a bakery in Twisp, which is a nearby town. They specialize in something called the Cinnamon Twisp, which is some sort of amazing cinnamon roll.
After breakfast we went for a hike outside of Twisp, to Lookout Mountain.
It took us a minute to find the hike and at first we accidentally went on the wrong trail to an abandoned mine operation that had since collapsed in a landslide. That was at least interesting.
It was a long hike up to the lookout tower.

The Cascades are back there somewhere. It wasn’t the smokiest day, but there was definitely a haze blocking most of the views.
We were a little behind schedule, so Rose took her nap on the hike.
She was so tired she even stayed asleep when I took the back carrier off.
After the hike we had a short break back at the RV and then we headed in to town. On the way we stopped at the office to pick up our mail. Susan had 17 cards and a package waiting for her.

In town, Withrop, we walked around a little and stopped by an old-time photo parlor.
We went out for pizza for dinner and Susan opened all of her cards while we waited for our food.

After pizza we headed home for birthday cake.
That’s a wrap.
